John Donham Amos/ Florence R. Carden Ancestors in WV

Updated April 9, 2007

About Our Family Research


We have fairly detailed family trees going back to the immigrating English who settled in VA and fought in the Amer. Revolution on Florence's side to a German "Caspar" who sailed to America with his first wife (died in childbirth) and finally settled to have 16 children with his 5th wife Rebecca. All 4 previous wives died in childbirth or of disease in the first year of marriage. So, he had 5 wives in 7 years. Rebecca lived to be 83 and mothered the 16 children. WOW - what a way to have lived!

The Amos' came down to northern WV from Pennsylvannia and were largely of German descent. The Carden's came to southern WV and then to northern WV via southern and western VA.

My sister and I are the last remaining direct descendents in the Carden line.
